The Native American Health Center has implemented a holistic system of care in the San Francisco Bay Area as a result of a multiyear strategic planning process that included a needs assessment based on the community-readiness model. The strategic plan links substance abuse, mental health, HIV/AIDS, and social services in a holistic approach congruent with Native American values and traditions. The plan also links prevention with treatment in a continuum of care. Based on a collaboration of Native American nonprofit community-based organizations and public agencies, the plan has resulted in bringing significant resources to the community.
